“Individuals who complete [one of these certificates] are entering into occupations that can provide for a rewarding career,” said Teman. “The grant provides for tuition and fee free programs in a variety of in-demand areas. Those who are eligible can enroll in one of the programs of study for only the cost of a book.”
